Does your knowledge of spirituality makes you light and playful, or it makes you a serious person?
Let me start with a real incidence of my life. I came across a very intelligent woman during the course of my spiritual interaction with people. The language that lady speaks, makes her appear quite intelligent. Her pursuit of knowledge and way of thinking makes me have an opinion that she is the epitome of sheer intelligence. When I look at her, I feel a divine light coming from infinite and grazing and illuminating her entire being. Just a gaze at her makes me expand in infinite beyond the beyond of all confining periphery of the existence. Just visualizing her in my mind, makes me feel a divine light emanating from her being, envelops and shrouds me, bring my all sense of perception to a complete standstill. To me she is the epitome of divine beauty, brilliant illuminating light of intelligence. Anyway, this is any perception, my problem (benediction), so, I don’t wish to burden you anymore.
Let us come to the main issue. Being charged with my perception, I wrote to her “I appreciate and admire your spiritual maturity and intelligence”. But having been conditioned in her stereotyped Indian style of action and reaction behavioral pattern, she wrote back to me, “What is the meaning of your message? What do you mean?” She was a little bit aggressive. Again I visualized her, felt that she is frozen in her consciousness.
This incidence made me think – What is the parameter of judgement whether a person is on the right spiritual part or a wrong spiritual path? I would like to put my answer as following:
If your spiritual pursuit makes you playful, it makes you expand in the infinite space of cheerfulness, you are on the right path. And if your so-called spiritual engagement makes you a serious person, if it confines you in a fixed pattern of behavior, making you a material entity, then, you are certainly on a wrong path. If your spirituality makes you traditional (Rama), then you need to have a crude honest investigation of all pros and cons of your realization and if your spiritual exploration makes your every moment a nascent, fresh, chirping and smiling spirit (Krishna), then be sure that God has got imbued in your being; you are the manifestation of divinity. If you can’t tolerate appreciation, then how will you tolerate sheer criticism? Even Jesus had to be crucified. A spiritual person is beyond the selective judgment. Spirituality makes you accept everything. It makes you Shiva who accepts even poison; it makes you Socrates.
O beautiful divine lady, I am in love with you. I am such a person who every moment be in love with every person (you may read it beautiful women). That’s why I happened to right a book titled “In love with all beautiful women”.
Dedication and gratitude:
I dedicate this article to my beautiful wife who took the pain to type this article, as I am very poor in typing. I wrote this article in the morning at 5am, so I could not have got it typed by my staff. I really admire my beautiful wife who has great courage and stamina to tolerate such an idiot like me.
Thanks to every soul engaged in the exploration of divinity.
